For other versions of Dan Dare, see the disambiguation page.
This embittered older version of Dan Dare sacrificed his life in a last-ditch attempt to save the world after discovering that the Government had entered a secret alliance with the Mekon and were turning human beings into food. The different incarnations of Dare are a neat illustration of the twentieth century's journey from the optimism of the Fifties, when people tended to trust the authorities, to the cynicism of the Nineties. Then you have the nostalgia of the 2000s, when people started to miss the certainties of Britain's war and post-war period, embodied by the revival of Dare in the fanzine Spaceship Away.
The story was reprinted in America as a four-part limited series by Fantagraphics in 1991.
